Happy Day

Emily and I are about to leave for an Annapolis Arts fest. It's great to be doing things with her again. Things are SO much better at home!

The old neighborhood reunion yesterday was SO wonderful. There were well over 60 people in attendance. We have to make it a yearly event! So many memories, so much love. We were a close-knit group of people, growing up in Bowie, an original Levitt community. I think my parents bought their house for $14,000. They scrimped and saved, and the rest is history. I love that they still live in the house I grew up in and that so many of my nieces and nephews went to the same schools I went to. Here's some family pictures from the day.

Emily and two of her cousins.

Do we look related?

I hope everyone is doing something this weekend that makes them happy. Life's short...make the best of it.

Happy day friends!

I love art fests, I am doing an art show in September, demonstrating glass bead making. IT should be fun, it's always great to introduce more people to hot glass work. They find it extremely interesting.
